The Living Underground: A Prose Anthology

By Hugh Fox | Go to book overview

HENRY H. ROTH--

All told Roth has published more than a hundred stories, and recent credits include a couple of NEW DIRECTION ANNUALS, THE NORTH AMERICAN REVIEW, THE LITERARY REVIEW, THE MASSACHUSETTS REVIEW, THE BELIOT FICTIONAL JOURNAL and THE PARTISAN REVIEW.

December Press published a collection of his stories, IN EMPTY ROOMS, back in 1980 and his novel, THE CRUZ CHRONICLE, which was published in 1989, is now out in paperback from Rutgers University Press--and is being turned into a film. A collection of stories, BOUNDARIES OF LOVE, was recently published by British American Publishing.

His work is painfully personal. You don't feel you are dealing with fiction, really, but with expanded diaries. It's like Fassbinder and much of Wenders, documentary-fiction, the camera on full time and what it captures it captures. Carefully artistic anti-art. Like Costley and Ascher-Straus in a way but with more of a concentration on the existential turn of the screw.

There is another Henry Roth (born in 1906, the author of the neglected classic CALL IT SLEEP) with whom our Henry H. Roth should not be confused.

A few years back Roth started teaching at City College in New York as an adjunct and is now a Professor. He has recently married for a second time and has two young children, Jeremy (four and a half) and Juliana (17 months)--which isn't so bad for a man who talks about himself all the time as having "aged considerably."
